We had our cabinet maker create 1/4"-plywood pieces in the same finish as the door panels, and then attached adhesive magnetic strips to the back of the pieces. They hold to the sides of the doors and freezer drawer and create the custom finished look that everyone is hoping to achieve. You just have to measure below the hinges and inside the gasket seal for a proper fit. (Approx: doors 43 x 2-1/4", drawers 23 x 2-1/4")

I'm so disappointed with this refrigerator. i had custom panels made for the fridge in white to match my cabinets. i had my space made deep enough to install my fridge but we cant because the panels are impinging the opening of the door so therefore we've had to pull the fridge out 6 inches so you can open the door. and the body of this fridge is black of all things. its false advertising making people that it looks like a built in. As an interior designer im telling you this fridge with panel ready is flawed. Ive had installers come over and say they've never seen anything like this. You should not make people believe that it is going to look like a built because it does not and is not. I would and never will recommend kitchen aid again. I also ordered the induction oven that was suppossed to be available and found out 2 weeks before my install that its on backordered til december or january. I dont know what im going to do but it won't be staying in my kitchen.

Just what we were looking for!

By 

from Sunshine Coast, BC Canada

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 Cu Ft Standard Depth French Door Bottom Mount Refrigerator:

We have only had the new refrigerator for about two weeks, but so far we love it. We were looking for a counter depth fridge without an ice maker / water dispenser on the front of it. This model of KitchenAid is still made in the USA, which we hope is a good thing. The quality and operation has been excellent. Lots of room, well thought out design, quiet operation and good looks. The handles even match our BlueStar gas range, which is a nice bonus.

Horrible

By 

from Marshfield, MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 Cu Ft Standard Depth French Door Bottom Mount Refrigerator:

The model I am reviewing is: KRFC302ESS00, S/N: K6170****
When we received our first refrigerator all I could hear was a hissing sound coming from the refrigerator. I called the company that sold it to us and they sent out an appliance repair person. In 2 seconds he told us the motor / pump was bad and he would order one. I called my sales guy and he said he would order me a new refrigerator. When they delivered the refrigerator the men could not have been more professional. The motor / pump is quiet, but now the left door interior folding hinge that seals when closed makes a loud clicking sound every time I open and close the left door and is also always wet like it is not sealing properly. The rack for the shelf's cannot be put on the lowest notch because it is too short which limits the placement of the shelves. The shelves have a 2 1/8" OPEN GAP between each glass shelf & the rear wall of the fridge! There is also a 1 1/8" open gap between the glass shelf & the side walls. Everything is falling off!
I will return this and buy a better brand

The Noise Level Was Too Much

By 

from Upstate NY

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 Cu Ft Standard Depth French Door Bottom Mount Refrigerator:

This fridge has been in my house for almost a week and today I've called the retailer and arranged to have it returned because of the constant and very irritating noise that it makes. The fridge is very nice in many other ways, and if not for the noise, I would've kept it. But after going back out and seriously shopping for other bottom freezer, french door, counter depth fridges......I've found others that have notably more interior capacity inside of only a slightly taller exterior.....for only a few hundred dollars more. I agree with other reviewers that the freezer is very small, but that was not a deal breaker for us, as we have a freezer in the garage. The interior of the fridge is very nice and very easy to see everything and nice quality shelving. The wine rack is a very nice feature for organizing and easy access to tall bottles. I do have doubts as to the sturdiness of the freezer drawer. It's a bit wobbly. We have a small home and the kitchen, dining, living and computer work area is all one open 1200 sq foot space. The intense weird buzzing noise that this fridge makes is giving me a headache. Due to the layout of my home, I can't get away from that noise. If you are not a sound sensitive person, and if you have a good deal of ambient noise in your home anyway, this might be a good choice for you. We read rather than watch TV....and I work from home on my computer and need quiet to focus. This fridge was to replace a 34yr old RCA fridge. It emits 4-5 times more noise than the old one and it runs virtually ALL the time. One of the noises this fridge makes is eerily similar to that of a dentist office drill. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the next fridge of a different brand name and tested by Consumer Reports to be in the top 5 quietest fridges.....will be much better for our purposes. If not, we'll go back to that very old, and very quiet fridge that is thankfully still working fine in our garage

Clean fit

By 

from San Juan Capistrano, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 Cu Ft Standard Depth French Door Bottom Mount Refrigerator:

This refrigerator is a great fit into our new cabinets. We remodeled our kitchen and went with this counter depth design. The inner workings of this refrigerator was the exact same as our previous refrigerator, which was a Kenmore. I believe they are all made by Whirlpool. That is fine. The counter depth refrigerator is about 2 to 3 inches shallower, hence counter depth. It didn't come with the little butter compartment, which I thought was odd.
